Hmm, OK, when I go there it always says that it's $249 anyway for DVDA and Vegas upgrade....Maybe that's with some imaginary shipping which I wouldn't have as I'd download. Not shipping to NZ that's for sure.

VASST tour update

Wow!! What a great time. Here in SFO, we've got Gary Kleiner, Jeffrey P. Fisher, Mike Downey, myself, and Leigh Herman from Sony. We've met some folks from the forums, had an awesome time with some of the user group folks, and tomorrow is the all-day ACID training event. Jeffrey P. Fisher will lead that one, and I'll be guest appearing in the "Scoring for Emotion" section related to ACID and Vegas 5.
Gary's script tools (Excalibur and Neon) are huge hits on the tour, but it's funny how many folks own these tools. Vegas 5 is attracting TONS of new users, evidenced by the new faces we're seeing on the various tour dates.
Congrats to the winners of the Opteron 64 processors and other great goodies on the road. The BOXX system and the VAIO systems are rockin' and rollin' along, even after a BOXX was destroyed in Chicago.

Looking forward to NYC, meeting the East coast crowds there too. Orlando, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, Phoenix, Toronto, and Honolulu are next stops, looking forward to those, too!!!

thanks to all that have been showing up in support of VASST and the Sony Media Software showcases. It's been great meeting so many of the DVInfo.net forum folks.

There are a buncha photos of the events on the VASST site if you'd like to see what sort of equipment we're flyin' around with.

Finally, for those that have ordered the Vegas 5 FASST DVD's, that DVD started shipping yesterday, you should have them shortly.

Lars: I'd be interested to see the script source on how you
call your DLL so it can access the Vegas functions / structures
etc.

I assume it isn't much code so you paste it in this thread for
everyone to see. Thanks!

You're not looking at the "special" upgrade price which, as Bryan said, now expires on June 4th. Here's the full link from the e-mail I received:

Hi,

OK, here goes:

lzvegas.js
--------------

import System.Windows.Forms;
import Sony.Vegas;
import lzVegas;

var _lzForm : lzForm = new lzForm(Vegas);


lzvegas.xml
---------------

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<ScriptSettings>
<AssemblyReference IsLocal="true">lzVegas.dll</AssemblyReference>
</ScriptSettings>

lzform.cs
-----------

This is the constructor:

public lzForm( Sony.Vegas.Vegas _INvegas )
{
// Our Application pointer
_vegas = _INvegas;

// Important, without this no window will show in Vegas.
this.Show();
}

Complete Visual Studio 2003 project can be downloaded here:

DVD Architect 2.0- possible to do this??

Hello,

Ok, Here is one.. if you have a 30 second piece of video as the background of your main menu, and you wish to have some text become one of your buttons .. And that text is part of the background footage and does not appear until say 10 seconds into the piece of video is playing.. can you map that background text as a button( I believe I saw Edward T. do this at his demo..) and can it be done if this does not appear until 10 seconds into the footage?

Thanks,
Mike Moncrief

OK, thanks Edward. It seemed a different keycode was being cookied or something so when I went via that link, it showed $249. Changing the keycode worked.

Thanks
Aaron

Boris Graffiti LTD install probs.

Hi all, I've posted on the Sony forums but thought I'd try here too.

I got Vegas 5 which comes with the Boris software. Received serial number in email but for some reason, something's not being accept in the install and I can't get past the User Data screen in the installer.

Anyone had this problem, and know a fix? Maybe I'm just blind but I can't see anything that should stop me unless the serial # is wrong or something.

Cheers
Aaron

Shuttle PRO vs Xpress w/ Vegas

Hi,
is there any point in getting the Contour Shuttle PRO
with all the buttons instead of the Xpress with 5 buttons?

I imagine reaching for the keyboard & mouse when it's time to edit - then Xpress should be fine..

Can anyone with experience of the PRO model help me out?
thanks

There was an update to the installation program. Are you using the updated version?

Boris Graffiti LTD Text Roll

Hi All!

I am attempting to do a text roll (or credit roll) in Vegas, and can get it to work using
Vegas.

However I am getting a better look using the Boris Graffiti LTD that came with the
Vegas 5 Upgrade.

In Graffiti, the text roll is all happening, looks like I want it to.

When I export the movie as an avi, then load it in to Vegas, I cannot get the background to be transparent.

Is this possible? Or am I missing something in Boris?

Any help would be appreciated.

Andy

P.S. Thanks to Peter, Edward and Don who answered my previous post. Peter, the photoshop file I create is quite long, hence Vegas will only show the middle part of the file.

Don, I found the transparent scroll!

Problem with 24p and fast motion

Hello all,
Long time reader, first time poster.
I've been following DSE's filmlook tutorial for use in a short film for school and my problem is this: There is a fight scene I'm currently working on, and the motion blur results in very obvious and ugly trails when rendering to 24p.
I've been able to run this same footage through Magic Bullet and the motion is very nice and crisp, very filmic as well. The resolution also looks better.
I'm not a big fan of magic bullet. Never found it to be anything special(redering takes sooo long!), nothing that couldn't be done with vegas and filters, but in this case, my eyes just can't deny the present advantage.
Have any of you experienced this? Were you able to overcome it in Vegas with different settings, etc?
Thanks in advance,
Irbbins

It depends on how "shuttle dependent" you want to become. I only use about four of the buttons on mine---mainly use the jog wheel but others will assign all the buttons and play that thing like a Stradivarius.
